1900257 - How to handle HANA Alert 43: 'Memory Usage of Services'


When checking the Alerts tab in HANA Studio and Solution Manager, there is an alert called “indexserver (pid 45281) on host suse-hanajl01 is running out of memory! Used memory: 180500 MB, effective allocation limit for this service: 534219 MB”.

For HANA Studio, you would find the alert by going to Administration Console -> Alert -> Show: all alert.


For Solution Manager, you would find the alert by transaction DBACOCKPIT -> choose HANA system -> expand Current Status -> Alerts.


Remember for this “Check used memory against allocation limit” alert in Solution Manager, it is auto-refreshed every 15 minutes, so the time stamp on the alert may be not the exactly time when alert occurs.

To check the exact time, please go to Administration Console -> Alerts -> double click on the alerts.
